Today for the very first time ever, I bailed on a CrossFit workout. Yesterday, I had a great workout, but my hair was bugging the crap out of me. So today, I remembered to pull it back. Went to CF this morning (3rd day in a row, thank you very much!) and it started off fine. 800m warm up run, lost of good warm up activities, then it was time to work on handstands.
I was actually excited about that because I'm getting decent at doing them against the wall, even being able to balance myself away from the wall some. So I kicked myself up to the wall and immediately, my arms buckled. No big deal, I would just plop down to my head then come down. As I plopped on my head...searing pain. What the? Then I remembered that I had pulled my hair back with a mini-clip. That little devil was embedding itself into my head.
Once I realized what was happening, I threw away the demolished clip and got a drink of water. Never one to just roll over, I did a few more handstands, but I started not feeling so great, so I just waited the few minutes until the start of the WOD. It was 7 rounds: 35 double unders (or lateral hops) & 1 power clean at 85#. I did the first 35 lateral hops and as I started to do the power clean, everything went black. Oopsie! So, I waited a little and tried the jumps again, but every single time, things would fade to gray. So, I gave up. I know that it was the right thing to do. It has been over 2 hours and I still feel a bit woozey, but I HATE quitting. I will just have to get back on the horse Friday.
I only earned 15 points yesterday which was a little disappointing, but I will keep at it!
